Cold Laser Therapy
Madera Veterinary Center is now able to provide your pet with cold laser therapy. This technique has been utilized for many years on human patients. Physicians and chiropractors have used it successfully on professional and Olympic athletes for pain relief as well as to improve their bodies ability to heal.
Instead of cutting like the focused beam laser that is used in surgery, the cold laser provides energy in the form of light waves that affects the production of endorphins, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain. Injured cells stimulated this way heal at a faster rate. What this means for your pet is that he or she can heal more quickly and comfortably.
Because of the ability to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, the cold laser is the latest technology in veterinary care for:
The cold laser is non-invasive and the treatment is painless. It has the added advantage that there are none of the potentially dangerous side effects associated with drugs. When used after a surgical procedure, the cold laser reduces pain, inflammation, and swelling. The cold laser is an amazing and effective tool for pain management and arthritis.
This treatment can also be used to promote healing for a multitude of situations including post-surgical sites, open wounds, lick granulomas, and other chronic inflammatory conditions. Most cases require a series of initial laser treatments with once-a-month, or as needed, maintenance. Please contact us with any questions regarding laser therapy treatment for your pet.
